Range of Projectile
This term “Range of Projectile” is associated with physics and to discuss it in the context of a cricket six length determination is quite fine. In this Range of Projectile mechanism, we throw a projectile in the air at an angle without considering the vertical and horizontal components of motion.
1.) Based on the angle of hitting
In context of cricket, we can take cricket ball as a projectile and when a batsman hit a six, it goes at an angle in the air. So we calculate the length of six on the base of angle of hitting. By using projectile formula we can state:
[R=v² Sin (2θ)/g]
Where: v= velocity at time of hitting
g= 9.8 m/s²
θ= Angle at which ball is hit.
2.) With the use of initial velocity and acceleration of ball.
s = ut + 1/2*at²
t = the time the ball stays in the air
u = initial velocity at which the ball left the bat (calculated like bowling speed)
a = 9.8 m/s² s= distance travel by the ball
